Update from Vineyard Manager Jason Krug


Vineyard Manager Jason Krug and our winemaking team are hard at work in the fields. They are shoot thinning the established vines, preserving only the best shoots for the upcoming vintage. They installed a new acre of vineyard, and planted more than 10,000 vines of a familiar favorite, Montepulciano, and a brand new varietal, Trebbiano Toscano. 







Jason says that due to the mild winter, "[the vines] are out two weeks earlier. We escaped the recent frost with minimal damage." Thanks to recent rains in excess of three inches, the newly planted vines have sustenance and the ground is soft enough for Jason and crew to plant the remaining 2,000 vines on his to do list.

Winemaker Chris Nelson taking a break from planting vines. When not helping plant vines, Winemaker Chris Nelson reports that the winery staff were able to hand bottle the new 2019 Auguri, which is undergoing a secondary fermentation currently to transform the still wine into the crisp, refreshing sparkling wine our guests have come to know and love. They are also working on a Riserva Auguri which will be aged on lees for an additional 6-12 months to increase mouthfeel and texture. He is looking forward to this exciting new project. Chris and his team have also assembled the 2019 Vermentino Surperiore, which is finishing cold stabilization and will be ready to bottle later this month.

Benvenuti Primavera: Welcome Spring
 

Barbara Raffaldini with a new Bota.We hope that everyone is healthy and safe at home. You all are in our thoughts during this difficult time. Despite all that is going on in the world, the vineyard is awakening from winter. Bud break is occurring throughout the vineyard, and the signs of spring are beginning to appear around the property. 
 
Our vineyard crew is hard at work laying out the new vineyard and digging holes to prepare for spring planting (and a new varietal--stay tuned!) that will fulfill our need for more vines in the coming years. In the winery, we received four new bottis to expand our production capability and align our winemaking and stylistic goals.

Covid-19 Update

 
COVID-19 Update
       Ciao Amici:

  At this time Governor Cooper has ordered that the onsite sale and consumption of food and alcohol be halted. Given this executive order and CDC recommendations, we think that it is in the best interest of our employees and guests to close our tasting room to the public. So effective immediately our tasting room is closed and will remain closed until April 1, 2020.

   This decision was not taken lightly, and we understand the impact this has on our business operations, employees, customers, and vendors. We will continue to monitor the situation, and we will re-open the tasting room as soon thereafter as it is safe to do so. 

   During this time, all of our wines will continue to be available for purchase online at www.raffaldini.com. Starting today until end of the day March 31, 2020, free shipping is available on 1/2 case and full case purchases when you enter the coupon code MARCHFREE when you check out. In addition, all wine club members who want their packages right away will be offered complimentary shipping.

   We are working on the launch of virtual wine tastings with Jay Raffaldini and will advise you of the times and dates. So please check your emails or our website for further information on this new offering.

   As the sign at our exit gates says:  Lontano dagli occhi, vicino al cuore.  While you may be far from sight, you are close to our heart.  We wish you and your family all the best of health and hope to see you in person when as we reopen to the public. 

Sincerely,

La Famiglia Raffaldini

Raffaldini Vineyards Named Among Top Vineyards Outside of California



 

"In the rolling foothills of the Yadkin Valley about an hour north of Charlotte, North Carolina, Raffaldini Vineyards & Winery focuses exclusively on dry Italian wines, earning it the nickname “the Chianti of the Carolinas.”

Using estate-grown Vermentino, Montepulciano, and other grapes, Raffaldini embraces the medieval Italian winemaking technique known as Appassimento. Rather than stomping freshly harvested fruit, Raffaldini dries its grapes, resulting in a unique complexity and higher alcohol content."
